TIL (Python 3.8) >>> r = b'\xcd\x03\xff' >>> print(r[0]) 205 >>> print(r[0:1]) b'\xcd' >>> r[0] == b'\xcd' False (huh?) >>> r[0:1] == b'\xcd' True (okay...) >>> type(r[0]) <class 'int'> >>> type(r[0:1]) <class 'bytes'> There went a couple hours today...

Yea, I get it. This hasn't been a normal year by any measure.

Ouch. I've actually lost 20-25 lbs since March.

Naa… I find it more humorous than anything else. It's been a long time since I've had _any_ expectations of fitting comfortably in standard size furniture.

Nice thought. Wrong unit. 😁276kg would work too, but also wrong unit.

That does look super cool. I wonder what the height/weight limits are...

When I was running a tech support department, I was asked (quite seriously) if I could send out an email letting people know when the server was going to crash, and to do it with a 15 minutes advance notice, to be followed by an email when the server was up again.

Django-extensions is one of those packages where you need to spend some time browsing all the docs to find all the amazing goodness in it.

Except there's no answer on there with a frequency higher than "more or less daily". How about "constantly"? (As in it's my #2 bookmark, right behind email.)

Retirement Process Phase 2 Step 3 complete. We found a house, our offer was accepted, and today was the inspection. We're going to be moving near to Rockwood PA. It's going to be an interesting 2.5 months...

Interesting. I thought you only needed to be level 1. Sorry, my mistake.

Very nice! (It can be an expensive hobby though, says the husband of a quilter.)

Hmm, I'm out of date - it looks like RFC-6214 is more current, although both are built on RFC-1149

Buy a backup unit. That avoids the single-point-of-failure issue with any particular piece of hardware, and in a lot of cases, that's actually a cheaper solution.

Don't know any 5OT games, but I do remember the "Easter Epic" - the 4 OT game 7 in the division semifinals where the Islanders beat the Caps. (That would have been '87, my last season playing.) Kelly Hrudy stopped 50 consecutive shots from the 3rd period to the end.
